C is for Checks and Cyan

I was honored this week to be a guest designer for Valery Anne's Butterfly Challenge.

The card I made used a Darice checkered EF, although the checks in this challenge could also be from gingham patterned paper or cloth, or even gingham ribbon; actually, anything that is checkered would be great.  One of my favorite colors is cyan; if you own a printer, you probably know that one of the cartridge colors is cyan, which is a beautiful color similar to turquoise.The foliage is made from a Cheery Lynn Fanciful Flourish die.  Also used to make the card were pearls, striped ribbon, flower punches.and a thin cyan grosgrain ribbon. The butterfly is cut from the largest die in the Spellbinders Wonderful Wings set.

I am entering this card in the following challenges ending:

Romans 10:9-11 If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved. NLT
